Creaking noise
« on: June 22, 2014, 08:05:03 pm »
Anyone experience a type of "creaking" noise. It happens at low speeds over uneven/bumpy surfaces. Sounds suspension like....

    Possible top mounts?  They are a weak point on the APE..

    My car does exactly the same, it's a 14 plate with 2,000 miles on the clock.

    I did think it might be the boot moving against the rubber bump stops but not sure

    they do this, car needs dangling in the air...honest... whenever mine has done it and then the car is lifted on a hoist, it cures it.

    jacking the car up with a jack puts a twist on the suspension and it starts again

    and.. its load sensitive, 6 people in the car does something as well

    not very scientific but this has all happened ;D
